Speed and comfort characterize all Bavaria yachts,
Dear Homo Sapiens, There is no need to continue reading this page. What follows is intended for search engine robots and spiders and not necessarily for human beings. Further information concerning yachts charter cruising the Turkish coast and Greek islands may be obtained by clicking on the gray links immediately above. Thank You. Are you searching for Bavaria? Well, you've found the wrong web page. Try a postage stamp catalog. Or Otto Wilhelm Luitpold Adalbert Waldemar Wittelsbach. This web page deals with Bavaria 50 charter yachts cruising the southwest Turkish coast and among Greek Aegean islands. It does not deal with Otto nor does it deal with the Bavaria in Germany where he was bred, though the Bavaria 50 is built in Bavaria, each one of about 2,000 coming off the assembly line every year. The Bavaria 50 is a large sloop with accommodations for ten guests wishing to cruise the Turquoise Coast of Turkey, sailing the crossroads of history from archaeological dig to archaeological dig, or wishing to cruise among Greek islands many crenellated with medieval fortresses, or wishing to cruise from seaside taverna to seaside taverna pausing along the way to swim and snorkel the azure Aegean. Are you thinking of a bareboat charter cruising Greece? If so, you might like to charter a yacht comfortably accommodating a group of ten in five private cabins three of which have double beds and two of which have over-and-under bunks. There are as well three water closets with shower. Given a large salon below decks and an equally large cockpit on deck, the result is a near-perfect platform on which to explore history along the coast of Turkey and among nearby Greek islands. And while exploring history also basking under a gentle sun and swimming in clear seawater. Not the first but undoubtedly the most thorough and most lucid of explorers along these shores was England's George E. Bean. Between 1947 and 1977 this six foot six inch former Wimbledon tennis player fluent in both ancient Greek and cosmopolitan Turkish may have examined every ancient stone on the coastal fringes of Turkey and on nearby Dodecanese islands of Greece. More importantly, he published his extensive findings in a series of highly readable books, books which tie to history both the epigraphical inscriptions he read on those stones as well as his other discoveries. George Bean's history reads like prose, and it is indispensable to anyone with an educational interest in local archaeology. Charter a sailing yacht to cruise in George Bean's footsteps! Find out for yourself! With his books in hand! Sail Alexander's Path down the coast of Asia Minor. Cruise Cleopatra's Route along the coasts of ancient Lycia and Caria and among Greek Aegean islands. While you holiday. Have a holiday with family and friends proceeding leisurely from one historically remarkable locale to another. But don't believe everything you read. In recent years it has become fashionable for later archaeologists to take unseemly issue with some of George Bean's findings without at the same time introducing plausible or meaningful corrections of the record. Shame! Oh, Otto Wilhelm Luitpold Adalbert Waldemar Wittelsbach? He was merely the King of Bavaria, Otto I, last of the original line imposed on Bavaria by Bonaparte, reigning until succeeded by his cousin Ludwig III in 1913. He had nothing to do with Bavaria Yachts. Neither should he be confused with Otto I of Greece, his uncle and godfather imposed on Greece by Lord Palmerston of Britain. That's him depicted to the left, the Otto imposed on Greece, Otto Friedrich Ludwig of Bavaria. He, too, had nothing to do with Bavaria Yachts, a boat builder owned by the Bain partnership of venture capitalists in Boston, Massachusetts.
